For the 2019-2020 school year Rufus C. Burleson Elementary School is SPOTLIGHTING SUCCESS, PREMIERING EXCELLENCE!
At Rufus C. Burleson Elementary, our mission is to accept our students for who they are both academically and socially. In conjunction with parents, we will inspire, guide, cultivate and nurture young minds by providing opportunities for students to become children of excellence.
Over the past few years, Rufus C. Burleson Elementary has implemented research-based instructional practices, placing student academic performances on an upward trajectory! (15-16,16-17, and 17-18 consecutively!) We are excited about our direction and the accomplishments of our students and staff meeting state academic standards.
Burleson has a caring and committed staff who works to connect with our parents and the community to ensure students' needs are met. Parents are valued partners and are encouraged to participate with school activities and events that connect us with our families. Other parent involvement opportunities include volunteering in classrooms, chaperoning field trips, attending parent teacher conferences, participating the HIPPY early childhood program, academic content area family nights, participation with SBDM and our PTO, and the use of the Power School System to monitor student academic performance.
"A school with a heart for the community where are students are not at risk, but of promise!"
